Enzymes are biocatalyst and are used in many industries. Protease is one of the important enzyme which exists in all organism. Many organisms such as bacteria, fungi and yeast are the main source of protease enzyme. In this work, protease was isolated from marine algae such as Gracilaria corticata, and Chladophora vagabunda. Protein concentration and specific activities were measured and compared for these species. Among these, Gracilaria coricata showed specific activity of 7.53 and Chladophora vagabunda showed maximum specific activity of 6.77 units/mg of protein.
